Cee Lo Green - 'Cee Lo's Magic Moment'

The result of a major-label brainstorming session titled ‘Which Of Our Artists Will Fill A Santa Suit Best This Year?’

Cee Lo Green - 'Cee Lo's Magic Moment'

5 / 10 The increasingly curious development of Cee Lo Green’s career from R&B crooner to cuddly prime-time cartoon character takes its latest turn with the release of this, his first Christmas album. ‘Magic Moment’ veers between festive bonhomie and the season’s habit of invoking more maudlin feelings, perhaps best typified by the Christina Aguilera duet ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’. Naturally, The Muppets make an appearance (on ‘All I Need Is Love’), as does Rod Stewart on ‘Merry Christmas, Baby’. Ultimately though, this feels most like the result of a major-label brainstorming session titled ‘Which Of Our Artists Will Fill A Santa Suit Best This Year?’
